Got the front end done for the most part. Still have to reinstall the brake lines on the extended brackets and put in my dual stabilizers. Should finish up tomorrow with it all though! Update on pics

DONE! so far anyways

Finished putting my Lift and tires on!!! Absolutely love the kit, it rides a little rough but I expected that. Drives perfect though, absolutely no problems out of the steering! Here are some pics

Another shot of the front end

Jeep on the lift, bout to start on the rear end

Proof that I did do the work, lol

My buddy helpin me work

Finally done!

Some quick poser shots

Yes, that is a mall cop behind my jeep telling me that i need to stop. I told him i was just trying to park. lol



Me by some stockers


All said and done I got 4 inches of lift out of the front and 3 inches out of the rear. Measure 21"from center of wheel to fender at start all the way around and 25" in the front and 24" in the rear in the end. The tires with full load and pumped up to 35 psi sit at 34". Overall I love it and I love driving it.

Part of the rough ride may be your tire inflation. 35 seems REALLY high to me. I'll bet you need about 27 to 28psi. Maybe less. Jeep looks fantastic. Well done.

Looks sweet! Now, if only you could use something other than a cell phone camera... Doesn't really do your Jeep justice.

Hey, looks great. I was thinking something looked missing, then it hit me. Mud! It's time to move outta those parking lots and quit flexin on the curb (the cops would probably appreciate that too) and put all that beautiful gear to work.
Guessing the next project will be bumpers and a winch.

Looks great. Not to beat the dead horse but for someone else that wants to pay a shop a ton of money...

How much was parts?

How much was labor?

How much did you learn bout your rig by doing it yourself


It IS a jeep thing. grats!

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.
